SAUK RAPIDS – After a brief inauguration ceremony, the “Riverside Nights” concert series kicked off Thursday evening at the new 1851 Square Amphitheater in Sauk Rapids. 1851 was the year Lynden Terrace, the first house in Sauk Rapids, was built.
The amphitheater is part of the larger $ 9.1 million park renovation project in Southside and Lions Park which has been named The meadow. The name represents the area that the early settlers created for themselves and the area of the complex itself today.
The first musical group to take the stage was Paul Diethelm. The first night’s headliner was Strange Daze.
You can attend the free music series every Thursday evening until September 2, with music from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Thursday night there were a few food trucks selling food and beer. There could be more as the concert series goes on. You can also bring a cooler of your own food and / or drinks if you wish.
